Sarah Palin Thinks Joe Biden Is An Idiot


Now that we know that Joe Biden can’t say the word “chains” because it is racist against Mitt Romney, former half-term governor (and queen of your heart) Sarah Palin would like to share a word salad of Deep Thoughts with her husband’s girlfriend, Greta Van Susteren. What does she think? That Joe Biden is a fucking idiot.

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR/FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: There weren’t enough groans and boos when he said such a disgusting comment, really, especially to a demographic there that is — includes about 48 percent of the community being black Americans.

Greta, if that’s not the nail in the coffin, really, the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.

But really, Joe Biden really drags down that ticket.

Let us recall, from like an hour ago, that His Lord High Hairgel Mittens of Romney could not come up with anything actually wrong with what Old Handsome Joe said, except that it was “divisive” and “not uplifting” and “inaccurate” in that it said Mitt Romney wanted to deregulate Wall Street, which is only on his website. (Also, the Obama campaign seeks to divide on “ethnic” lines.) What does Sarah Palin think about Romney’s recent remarks? Are they “disgusting” and divisive? Let us go to the blockquote.

VAN SUSTEREN: Governor Romney today came out with a speech, and probably — according to Carl Cameron, my colleague, this is a much more aggressive speech from Governor Romney than we’ve been seeing, saying things like about President Obama that he’s intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, out of energy, and so his campaign has resorted to diversions and distractions, to demagoguing and defaming others. This is an old game of politics. What’s different this year is that the president is taking things to a new low.

You’ve had a chance to look at the governor’s speech. What do you think?

PALIN: I read the transcript, and yes, Greta, I think that Governor Romney now, having spent years, literally, running for president, has really grasped the notion now that this is not a dress rehearsal. This is it. So he has to use these powerful and truthful and accurate words to describe what President Obama is running on and what he is doing to America.

Romney’s coming out swinging. This is what we need. I think that Paul Ryan has helped energize Governor Romney. And this is all good for America because we will hear more accurately the state of the union and the state of this campaign.

Got it? Good. Mitt Romney and John Sununu and Donald Trump and every Republican in the known universe can spend close to four years calling the president of the United States a Kenyan anti-colonial Marxist Socialist who doesn’t understand America because he is an alien and a “boy” who’s in over his head and didn’t even really kill Bin Laden, but my fucking stars how dare Joe Biden say “chains.” THERE WERE BLACK PEOPLE IN THE ROOM!

Also, Joe Biden said “y’all” so you know he is the real racist. Meanwhile, over at Buzzfeed, they’re saying of the Obama campaign’s “hey wait a minute, fake ragers, Republicans talk about ‘shackles’ all the time!” that it “sets a new standard for linguistic gymnastics.” Sorry, but McKayla Maroney is not impressed.

      Hey Joe, just tell that half-governor moron to eat your shorts because your butt has more brains than her head does.

    1. badseeds

      "Sarah," "sharing," "salad," and "Paul Ryan" all in the same sentence. Only word missing is "tossing."

  1. Schmannnity

    You can only talk about chains and black people in quiet rooms, with phrases like, "can't wait" and "they'll never see it coming."

  2. LastGasp

    What does she think? That Joe Biden is a fucking idiot.
    Of course the first thing that comes to my mind is "Pot calling the kettle black." Or, "Takes one to know one!" There, I've said enough…

    1. RadioBowels

      Actually it's more like projection. She's an idiot, she fucking knows it, and they told her to call a guy who intelligent, if pleasantly gaffe prone, an idiot. Either way she's a r***ded cunt.

    2. HogeyeGrex

      The pot/kettle thing just doesn't quite cover this. Beyond the false equivalence, there is no pot nor kettle as vapid as Palin. It's more the bottom of the Mariana Trench calling a mud puddle dark. Or an event horizon saying that quicksand sucks.

      Or something.

  3. OneYieldRegular

    Can't you just feel the enormous groundswell of support from the Black community for Sarah Palin's deeply sincere concern?

    1. Ruhe

      Certainly there is always some sort of "swelling" when Sarah makes an appearance. She's America's top cougar!

      1. sullivanst

        It may just be the play graphic superimposed on her, but the still on the video player suggests the years are starting to catch up to her. I'm not going to hit play to confirm this, because I don't hate myself.

  4. Jus_Wonderin

    "I read the transcript, and yes, Greta, I think that Governor Romney now, having spent years, literally, running for president, has really grasped the notion now that this is not a dress rehearsal."

    Hmmmm. Is that some kind of a complement?

    1. NellCote71

      You beat me to it. Ex-governor Insalata Mista is certainly an expert on dress-rehearsal campaigns.

  5. PuckStopsHere

    Ten minutes of HER? Anybody who listens to that whole thing is going to come out [REDACTED] on the other side. Go to YOUR ROOM, Wonkette! Now!

    1. FakaktaSouth

      The back and forth whine factor of these two amazingly horrid women reminds me of the noise someone playing a saw makes. ZEEEE ZAWWWWW. Greeeeeetttttaaaaaaaa saaaaaaaaarrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh. Just wretched.

  6. LetUsBray

    "Joe Biden drags down that ticket" from VP Candidate Train Wreck herself? You're not allowed to join the Republican Party until you've mastered blatant, transparent projection, are you?

  7. SorosBot

    If Romney has "spent years, literally, running for president, has really grasped the notion now that this is not a dress rehearsal", then why didn't he pay his taxes in a way that he could release them to the public without fear of severely damaging his campaign?

    1. Native_of_SL_UT

      If he's been running for President for years and it took him this long to grasp the notion of how to do it, how long would it take him to really grasp the notion of being President. Being President has got to be way harder to do than running for President.

  8. sullivanst

    Andrew Kaczynski is a fucking moron.

    Thank you for letting me say that, I had to let it out.

  9. Chichikovovich

    You tell 'em Sarah! Damn straight it's divisive to talk about "chains".

    Next thing you know Biden'll probably say that some Americans are "real Americans" and other Americans aren't. And that would be a sign of a real divisive hatemonger.

    Because, you know, some hatemongering is real and some is just made up.

    1. NellCote71

      He might even say that a certain blah president doesn't understand the Anglo-Saxon tradition.

  10. sbj1964

    Sarah Palin thinks Joe Biden is an idiot? She used the I-word? Where's Al Sharpton?Wait he's the N-word guy.Where's Carrot Top?Or as Sarah knows him Bristol's next baby daddy.

    1. HistoriCat

      Where's Carrot Top?Or as Sarah knows him Bristol's next baby daddy.

      At least Tripp is a cute little kid. A Carrot Top/Bristol progeny on the other … oh the humanity!

  11. Mittens Howell, III

    Sing your song at the Republican Convention, Sarah.

    Oh, Woops! I forgot. You weren't invited.

  12. NorthStarSpanx

    I thought the less-pc Sarah would have been bold in saying "Sambo Americans." I mean, that's what she quit the Governorship for, right?

  13. mavenmaven

    When the Republicans say something is a "new low", you know they're hurting. Because no one knows low like the GOP.

  14. MacRaith

    Sarah Palin ought to know all about the ways a vice-presidential pick can drag down a ticket. She really should. It ought to be her main area of expertise.

  15. no_gravity

    She has to quit wearing those crooked wigs. That's why she wasn't asked to speak at the RNC.

  16. johnnymeatworth

    Well sure, the man has had exactly ZERO REALITY SHOWS.

    Plus, this from someone wearing Lenscrafters glasses trying to look smart.

  17. BeefHardcake

    The Fox News idiots have got to be counting the days till Palin's contract is up. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time, during her fifteen minutes, but right now I just imagine the Fox execs rolling their eyes at having to put up with the word salad. At least their other contributors manage to string together something that at least SOUNDS like a coherent thought. Almost.

  18. Isyaignert

    Thank gawd there was a transcript. My idea of Hell is to be put in a wet wool sweater and being forced to listen to that harpy whore spew harpy whore chit.

  19. Texan_Bulldog

    I'm thinking Snowbilly has to get all the airtime she can get while she still can. I can't imagine Roger re-upping her Fox contract since only about 8 people in the entire world give two shits about her or her opinion.

  20. LetUsBray

    Oh, and kudos for the screen grab that makes Dumbelina look especially air-headed. More than usually so, I mean.

  21. DaSandman

    And at the GOP convention there will be a contest to see how many euphemisms they can come up with for the word nigger.

  22. Mittens Howell, III

    If there were black people in that room then it definitely wasn't one of Mitt Romney's "behind closed doors' meetings.

  23. Schmannnity

    I remember a time when Republicans weren't such pussies and didn't have to demand a daily apology for some affront to their tender sensibilities. But I date myself.

    1. SoBeach

      I think they're just test-driving a new campaign gambit. They act shocked and outraged that anyone would say such awful, awful things and maybe there are some voters dumb enough to think a vote for Romney is a vote for civility or something.

      They'll go with it for a few days, then drop it like they dropped the "Obama is foreign and doesn't understand America" bit a while back. The Romney campaign is just flailing around in the dark, hoping to hit something that works.

  24. Generation[redacted]

    She's smart and people listen to her. That's why I'm sure we'll hear more of her wisdom when she speaks at the Republican convention this year.

    What? Oh, nevermind.

  25. FakaktaSouth

    I got to the word "SIZZLING" out of Greta's fucked up twisted noise hole and had to stop. I cannot listen to that moronic, vile, disgusting cunt say a WORD about Joe Biden. She needs to give people advice on who should be the vice president in the same breath she tells us all the most effective forms of birth control, best possible parenting tactics, and maintaining long term employment. She sucks, I hate her the most of anyone, for her inability to see herself clearly more than for what she actually is.

    1. elviouslyqueer

      Every time I hear her name (not just her voice, mind), I really want to kick John McCain square in his colostomy bag for foisting this petty vindictive tramp and her useless trailer trash family on America.

      And then back up and kick him again, just for good measure.

  26. Katydid

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again…who falls for this horseshit?

    Also too, does she really think she's being crafty by saying Hillary can make Obama win, and that Barry will hear that and say, "Damn, she has a point, Joe, you gotta go." Sorry, my mistake, I should have stopped at "does she really think."

    1. Dildeaux

      She plays to the virulently anti-liberal crowd. They hate us with a white hot heat. Any thumb in our eye, even over some silly alternate reality shit, is fine with wingnuttia.

  27. elviouslyqueer

    Dear Sarah:

    Nobody, and I do mean NOBODY, gives a fried flying squirrel monkey fuck what you have to say. Please, and I say this sincerely, please shut your fucking uninformed irrelevant haggishly divisive racist trap and go the fuck AWAY.

    Signed,

    Earth

    1. chicken_thief

      However, a "fried flying squirrel monkey fuck" sounds like it might be fun, but I admit I'm out of the loop. What exactly does that entail?

  28. HogeyeGrex

    Joe Biden really drags down that ticket.

    The one subject she can speak on with authority, and she still gets it wrong.

  29. Mittens Howell, III

    After Joe Biden's finished with Paul Ryan maybe Sarah will finally realize what a gentleman he was in the face of her sham VP candidacy.

  30. Exhausted66

    Does Lou Sarah refer to Mitttens as Governor Romney in order to lift herself up?

    "Donchaknow I was a Governor too, and I could be President."

    Why is she still allowed to talk on television?

  31. Ruhe

    This demonstrates an obvious difference between the political tropes employed by both parties. Typically the Republicans, even the dim ones, make use of the gesture "when he says X he means Y." They love this rhetoric of translation even if their arguments are usually embarrassingly tenuous. On the Dem side the gesture is more like "when he says X he means X" as in "when Paul Ryan says he will balance the budget by fucking your grandma that is exactly what he means." And that sort of fact-based rhetoric really just writes itself. Being a dumb Republican looks easy but it's probably very hard.

  32. BonoboReview

    Wait — did she say "nail in the coffin"? Shameful. She knows that much of the population is elderly and going to die. This is a despicable attempt to take advantage of the olds.

    1. Gleem McShineys

      Especially considering the average age of FOX News viewers! This kind of divisive rhetoric just demeans pathetic starfucker tabloid teevee even further!

  33. jjdaddyo

    Holy shit! Sara Palin actually "read" something?
    Also, does Patron Saint of Bad Plastic Surgery Greta ever have any guests besides Palin? Why is this show not just called "Greta and Sarah Bitch About Libruls" or something?

  34. natoslug

    Palin? Really? Couldn't we get some political insight from someone a little more coherent and relevant, like Jared Loughner? The ravings of a constipated halibut rapist are too much.

  35. SoBeach

    The word "chains" has these boneheads screaming like scalded dogs? Really? Fantastic. It's going to be a fun couple of months (and additional four years) where I get to ruthlessly mock you for being imbeciles.

    1. bikerlaureate

      Yup, the day after(?) Rmoney used the word "shackles".

      No amoral cognitive dissonance there.

  36. CrunchyKnee

    I for one cannot wait for Paul "I wanted to fuck Ayn Rand" Ryan's reality teevee shows and Faux News spots after the election loss. Mostly so this dumb cunt will be out of a job.

  37. SorosBot

    Dan Quayle must be happy that thanks to this harpy he's no longer the poster child for idiotic unqualified VP picks.

  38. MoeDeLawn

    In lieu of a convention spot, she's been promised rides on the elevator at the San Diego Garage Mahal. It's apparently big enough to hold snow machines.

  39. Spurning Beer

    Hey Sarah, does FOX News have an exclusive contract with you? Because if you got onto one of those Comedy Central roast shows, you 'd KILL. Lisa Lampanelli would be speechless. After a few Glen Rice jokes, anyway.

    1. MilwaukeeKent

      One day Sarah was riding to town for supplies and her snow machine broke down a little ways out. She walked the short distance and found a mechanic to tow and fix the machine. He said it would take about an hour and a half. She told him she was going to go for a walk and would be back at that time.
      When she returned she asked what was wrong with the snow machine. The mechanic looked at her and said, "You blew a seal." She wiped her chin and replied, "Yah. I got lonely on the walk. So what's wrong with the machine?"

  40. SayItWithWookies

    VAN SUSTEREN: You know, it's — both sides think the other side is dirtier than himself or herself and this campaign. But it's interesting that no sooner did the — Governor Romney give that speech than Ben LaBolt, who is the press secretary for the President Obama campaign — he came out and said, Governor Romney's comments tonight seem unhinged and particularly strange coming at a time when he's pouring tens of millions of dollars into negative ads that are demonstrably false.

    It's sort of the "unhinged" and the "particularly strange." I mean, the insults are flying back and forth.

    Good gravy, Greta's about as inarticulate as Palin is. Reading that transcript is like listening to two drunk creationists wander through the natural history museum.

    1. natoslug

      Yes, but I'd pay to follow two drunk creationists wander through the natural history museum, whereas with the GretaCooter show, I'd pay not to see, hear, or know anything about them ever again.

  41. widestanceromance

    The Ds talk about chains, but remember it's the Rs that actually do something with them.

    Also, R&R do not talk in word salad. They talk in such an over-processed extrusion of dog whistles and garbage, it can only be called Word Slime.

  42. bureaucrap

    In the next Obama administration, he should appoint mooselini secretary of boobs (in both senses of "boobs").

  43. KeepFnThatChicken

    I once said I was tired of her, and then recanted because the news that swept through in her vacuum was too bleak.

    I take that back, yet again. SHUT THE FUCK UP, LADY.

  44. Tundra Grifter

    "This is not a dress rehearsal…"

    The only dress Duh Gov' has that wasn't paid for by the RNC.

  45. Tundra Grifter

    At the risk of pointing out the obvious, McCain-Palin lost to Obama- Biden and Duh Gov' claims Joe Biden is dragging down the ticket?

  46. ttommyunger

    Those two: one jars the eye, the other hurts the ears. Together, the perfect shit sandwich.

  47. Billmatic

    Mitt Romney was reached for comment from his Shack of Socialization in Bizzaro Land: "ME NOT MITT ROMNEYS. BIDEN RACIST SO AM OBAMA. ME AM VERY HAPPY OF THIS, OBAMA AND NOT SMART, ME NOT WANT DEREGULATE WALL STREETS."

  48. TootsStansbury

    Ok that's it. I'm done. I think alternate universes have finally blended and these charactera are the result. What other explanation is there for such truly bizarre behavior?

  49. Estproph

    Only Romney gets to talk about chains, because then the speeches will all be the right length.

  50. prommie

    Cunt, "black american" isn't the preferred nomenclature.

    The fucking cunt abides, though. Its kinda comforting to know she's out there, being stupid for all us sinners.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      She makes me want to beat a corvette with a tire iron. I think being a proudly ignorant, smirkily racist, profoundly inept twat is more pulling the trigger til it clicks (with votes) worthy, and none of them are names that even people around here would self apply. She's not even high-spirited or blow worthy.

  51. Steverino247

    Listening to Sarah Palin speak is like listening to a beauty contestant or cheerleader explain the Higgs boson discovery.

  52. marconidarwin

    Well, Alaska Palin just wants a speaking gig at the DNC. She's been dumped from the RNC, the quota for Palin Reality Shows has been filled with Tawwwd and Bristol, and FOX "News" has nothing for her.

    What's a GILF to do?

    Maybe hook up with the OctoMom in tasteful porn. Scissoring like.

  53. Dildeaux

    Id rather eat broken glass than listen to this untalented skeevey bitch further mangle her version of the english language.

  54. ahnc

    Sarah is just channeling her great disappointment at not being picked for vp and being left out of the GOP convention and is taking it out on poor Joe O'Biden.

  55. fredbell

    This imbecile is still not comfortable saying 'Joe Biden' — she wants to say 'Joe O'Biden', which is what she thought his name was until August of 2008…Notice at 1:18 of this word salad, she pauses between 'Joe' and 'Biden'….

    "Joe…….Biden drags down the ticket"

  56. BarackMyWorld

    Remember before conservatives learned to use indignation as a weapon and they used to bitch about liberals being too sensitive? Oh, those were the good ole days…

  57. AbandonHope_

    Who?

    Wait, is this that woman we see in those National Enquirer and Weekly World News stories?

  58. larrykat

    It strikes me as particularly obscene that Palin would dare to suggest anything at all concerning Hillary Clinton. I cannot imagine them in the same room together even. I suppose they could talk about their philandering husbands, but that'd be about it.

  59. DahBoner

    Isn't it about time the Snowbilly Messiah nails herself to a cross and expires (Just Like Jesus Did) for Teabagger's Sins???

  60. MonkeyMotion

    That's right, Fox: please continue letting Palin spew advice to Mittens & Ryan, and the whole GOP. 'Cause everything she's done — governing, VP candidate, raising great kids, being super smart, etc. — has been wildly successful.

    If she teams up with Bill Krystol or Krauthammer, they'd be unstoppable!

  61. Chet Kincaid_

    Sarah knows a whole freakin' lot about chains and black people! In fact, the motion picture "Black Snake Moan" accurately depicts her relationship with Glen Rice.

  62. zippy_w_pinhead

    I was going to read this story, but I got part way through the headline that says "Sarah Palin thinks…" and I fell right out of my chair laughing…

  63. Incitefully_Joe

    this is a much more aggressive speech from Governor Romney than we’ve been seeing, saying things like about President Obama that he’s intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, out of energy

    Wasn't this literally hours after Romney cancelled a campaign event, citing exhaustion?

    And then said, no, he didn't mean exhaustion exhaustion, and also totally didn't cancel the stop because it was at the home of an unwed couple, either. It was just because you don't need to know why, is why.

  64. Isyaignert

    Ya know, if you sit back and squint while looking at the video before it starts, the circle around $arah's face looks like a "surveyor's mark."

  65. LibertyLover

    No, No, No, No, No. Wonkette will Not get me to click and hear that screechy voice. I won't, I won't, I wo…. Arrrrgh! You got me again.

  66. CastleRockBear

    Talk about throwing stones from within your own house! We need to concentrate our combined energy on making impossible for this she-hack to speak! Seriously, she is nothing more than a Barfing Barbie! (but not as pretty) LOL

  67. GregComlish

    Really? Three pages of comments in and still nobody has used "(insert meme here) Libel"? Color me impressed.
